Pon-PengI got to know my Dharma brother C.H. Tsai at work. He gave me the book What Makes You Not a Buddhist by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, which introduced me to Tibetan Buddhism and taught me how to be a real Buddhist. Then I read more of Rinpoche’s books and listened to Rinpoche’s MP3 teachings on Words of My Perfect Teacher. Then at Losar, I made the aspiration to purify my past karmic debt. Then I saw another opportunity—the Matching Funds Program.
Because of the Matching Funds Program, my monthly donation of US$15 is doubled to become US$30! If these Patrons of Manjushri did not make this aspiration and let us know, I would probably think that US$15 is too small an amount and I just would not think of donating. Thanks to their alert, more people will be encouraged to contribute their small effort. May all sentient beings have enough to eat and to wear, and then make the aspiration toward goodness and good deeds. May Khyentse Rinpoche and my guru Woser Rinpoche have good health, and accomplish their Dharma activities.
